The Nation’s critical infrastructure provides essential services that underpin American society and sustain the American way of life. We know critical infrastructure as the power we use in our homes and businesses, the water we drink, the transportation systems that get us from place to place, the first responders and hospitals in our communities, the farms that grow and raise our food, the stores we shop in, and the Internet and communication systems we rely on to stay in touch with friends and family.
Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience information builds awareness and appreciation of the importance of critical infrastructure and reaffirms the nationwide commitment to keep our communities safe and secure. Learn more about what critical infrastructure is and how it is important to our daily lives. You can also get involved with the Hometown Security initiative to ensure that you and your community are prepared for any and all incidents.
